Anti-Depression Foods - Possible Natural Solutions

appetite or they are eating too much, they feel tired all the time or they are lacking
sleep they might be suffering an episode of depression.

Depression can be caused by any situation that makes you feel sad. However there
are certain elements in your body that might make you more vulnerable to be
depressed.  The lack of certain nutrients in your diet can affect your mood and make
you feel depressed. Evidence shows that consuming high amounts of Omega 3 have
a huge anti depressant effect. This effect could be explained by the fact that fatty
acids of Omega 3 help in building the neuronal connections in the brain as well the
neurotransmitters. Omega 3 fatty acids can be found in fish oil and flax seeds
supplements.

In order to increase your serotonin levels you will need to consume several amino
acids. Tryptophan and 5-Hydroxy Tryptophan are compounds that can be found in
food with high protein content. Fish, meat and beans contain a high concentration of
these substances. Not consuming enough of these amino acids can increase the
chance of suffering depression. Anti depression drugs sometimes can produce too
much serotonin having side effects such as high blood pressure, dizziness and
sometimes disorientation.

Increasing the intake of vitamins such as B- vitamins can help lower the probability of
depression. Levels of homocysteine which is a protein that can be found in the
bloodstream cannot be too high or you might double your chances of getting
depression. In order to lower the amount of homocysteine in your blood you need to
consume a good amount of zinc, magnesium and vitamins of the B complex like B6,
B12, B2 and B3. These nutrients in the right amount can be really helpful in
preventing depressive states. As you might guess consuming lots of fruits and
vegetables is not only good for the body but the mind also benefits a lot from eating
correctly.
